Nice. TRUE's are really sweet. I personally use a Scythe Mugen II; large and quiet is awesome (if hard to install).

To the OP, since it's very easy to install, go for it. If it's too noisy, come back and look at coolers with 120mm fans or bigger. In my experience, case fans and the power supply especially contribute the most to noise.
